The 2017 Arson Awareness Week (May 7-13) theme is “Preventing Arson at Houses of Worship”. The week’s focus is on the importance of collaboration among fire and emergency services, law enforcement, insurance companies, the justice system, and faith and community leaders to help reduce arson at houses of worship.
